Inverlochy Castle
Fort William

Built in 1863, Inverlochy Castle is a striking lakeside property just three miles outside the small Highland's town of Fort William. Set in sprawling grounds in the foothills of Ben Nevis, Inverlochy has an intimate atmosphere which makes it feel more like a large house than a grand castle, despite its exterior turrets. At its heart, you’ll find a double-height hall with a sweeping staircase, a crackling fire and sofas to listen to live harp performances in the evenings. Our favourite room in the house is the Drawing Room, which is a nice spot for Afternoon Tea overlooking the countryside and private lake. Modern British cuisine is served at the restaurant; do be aware that their dress code requires men to wear a jacket and tie when dining.

Rooms are traditional and filled with four-poster beds, flowery eiderdowns, thick patterned drapes and antique-style Chaise Longues. However amongst this antiquity, modern technology has not been forgotten. You'll find flat-screen mirrored televisions, internet access and DVD players. The country setting is perfect for those looking to get stuck into outdoor activities; options are endless, choose from white-water rafting to snowboarding on the Nevis mountain range, abseiling, archery, wakeboarding, hunting, stalking and fishing. For children there are board games, organized woodland walks, a trip on the Hogwart's express, horse-riding and Playstations for rainy days. Inverlochy Castle offers airport transfers in its own Rolls Royce Phantom should you wish to arrive in style.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
